Jon Crispin's Notebook

Football and Frog

Posted in Animals, Nature, Sport by joncrispin on 27/09/2014

If you read this site regularly, you might think that most of my photography has to do with the suitcases project or random things that go on in my life.  But I still shoot stuff in an attempt to make a living.  Once in a while I help out my friend Thom Kendall, who has the contract to shoot UMASS sports.  Today was the first game to take place in Amherst in several years, as the team has been playing home games at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro (yeah, it’s complicated).  Upon review, this play was ruled a touchdown, and I was happy to get this shot.

With all the TV timeouts, I didn’t get home until about 7.45.  We had some nice mozzarella and one of the last good tomatoes of the season, and Cris wondered if any of the basil that we grow in pots on the deck was still edible.  It was dark out so she brought in the pot and started trimming leaves.  Quite quickly she noticed that this froggie had come in with the plant.  We caught it, and after I took this photograph, put him (her?) back outside.  Love those sticky feet.

Tiny Bug on Basil

Posted in Food, Insects, Nature, Plants by joncrispin on 20/06/2012

This is the smallest dang grasshopper type bug I have ever seen. It was hanging out on the basil this morning.  I should probably get a longer macro lens; my guess is that those of you who look at this site on your phones are out of luck.  Love the green though.
